Echoes of War
Book 1 in the Echoes Trilogy
Paperback | Kindle
By Cheryl Campbell
Publisher: SparkPress
Paperback release date: September 10, 2019

Dani’s whole world implodes when she discovers she is not human, but an Echo, a race of aliens that can regenerate after death to a younger age. A member of the Brigands, survivors who scavenge to live, she is in danger of falling into the hands of the Wardens. The Wardens are aliens like her who want to brainwash Echoes who are not a part of their mission, and kill all the humans. She also has to worry about MP raids, the human police group. This apocalyptic life was what she knew until she saved a little boy from death. Inspired by the boy, Dani wonders if there is not more that can be done to stop the Wardens from destroying MPs and Brigands alike, no matter if human or Echo. If that is not enough, Dani is also the object of deadly obsession of one of the Wardens, of whom Dani had humiliated and wounded in one of her previous lives.

We all know the story. An earnest teen, who just wants a new truck to take out his girl, his dad to stand up to his boss, and to rock out at a show, gets caught up in his wacky scientist friend’s scheme to steal some plutonium so he can time travel. Things go awry when said teen (Marty) gets sent back in time instead and lands in all sorts of hot water. His mom has a crush on him, he has to train his dad to stand up for himself, and the town bully (boss in the future) is on his case. He also accidentally almost erases himself from existence. With the help of the “Doc” from the past, Marty must right the wrongs and get Back to the Future! But what happens when you put the most famous writer of all time’s stamp on it?

A delightful mix of ’80s fun and loquacious language. Check out more on William Shakespeare’s Get Thee Back to the Future! by Ian Doescher here below.
